Ok so I am lost as to whether to have my FH wear the same color suit as his GM & BM, or if he should wear something different as to stand out.

We are having a very small BP, just BM, MOH, Bridesmaid and GM.

My colors are silver and ivory.

Should I have them all in silver suits and have different tie, or different suit color for FH?, or all the same? I'm lost

    Normally the groom wears something a little different to stand out. But it may be the same suit- just a different colored vest or even just a different colored hankie.

    My FH will be wearing his ballroom dance tux while all the other guys will be in a normal tux, so he will look different because of that.

    You could have FH in black suit & groomsmen in gray or reverse it.

    You could have all of them in the same color suit, but a different color tie & vest for FH.

    I am with Analy - what does he want? For ours my FH top concern was keeping the cost down for the guys in the wedding, so he is wearing a grey tux - which looks way better on him, but eveyrone else is wearing black because they are less money. Its all about what the two of yuo want.

    Normally groom is different or wears something that makes him stand out, like an accent color (his tie, etc).

    My FH wanted a purple tux. For real. I was SO DISAPPOINTED when I found that Men's Wearhouse didn't have one.

    So it will be black tuxes for all with some kind of difference in the vest/tie to make FH stand out.

    I hope you mean gray suit and not silver...

    Up to you on what look the two of you want. Him to REALLY stand out with a different color suit. Or just have a different tie/vest and different boutonniere to stand out.

    Our colors are purple and silver. All men (grooms men, groom, fathers) will have the same tux. The grooms men will have silver vests and ties, the groom will have a white vest and tie, and the fathers will have a black vest and tie.

    My hubby wore the same Tux components in the same colors as his GM, but he wore different shoes and a Fedora to set himself apart. We did not do full tuxes, either. Just the pants, vests & Euro ties. And shirts, of course Smiley winking

    Yes I meant gray, sorry about that one! I asked him, he says he trusts my judgement since I always layout his clothes anyway. So, he will pick out the suits but will leave the color scheme to me :/

    Ok ladies thank you for clearing this out, I had no idea of what was the norm or even if there was one.

    I think we will just have same color suits, and different color tie.

    @ Patrice- Date Twin yay!! finally I have a date twin Smiley smile

    Karen I like the idea Hayley gave with your FH wearing a lighter gray and the GM's wearing a darker one... It looks really nice.... In fact I think I will steal that idea, thanks Hayley!!!!

    Our GMs are all going to wear black suits and purple ties, FH is going to wear a black suit with pinstripes and a purple tie. Also, the GMs will have green orchid boutonnieres and FH will have a white one.
